European Gooseberry Harvest

Mon Jul 16, 2012 2:02 am 15 July 2012 European Gooseberry Harvest.
Seven pounds of berries were picked from the one European Gooseberry bush in the garden. These berries are large compared to the American Gooseberry, about the size of a large marble. Criteria for when to pick was, some berries were starting to change to a reddish pink colour and turning soft, and a few started to drop off the branches with slight agitation, and taste was sufficiently sweet.Birds do not bother with them. Some berries were set aside for eating raw, and the remainder will be combined with blueberries to make juice.
